MALA: Sandalwood Jasper Mala
While Tigerskin Sandalwood is part of the sandalwood family, you will find that it often does not carry the scent that sandalwood is associated with. As a natural wood these beads will begin to darken with age and can become discoloured if they are exposed to perfumes or sprays. They can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap and may be brushed with natural oils to prevent undue weathering.
